Teen tourist from Russia killed in boating accident in Castaic
The teen was riding in the watercraft at about 3:45 p.m. with another man on Sunday when it turned into the path of the boat, sheriff’s officials said in a news release.
Following the crash, sheriff’s deputies arrived and administered CPR but the boy was pronounced dead at 4:19 p.m. The teen’s 30-year-old passenger was airlifted to a local hospital in critical condition.
Alcohol does not appear to have been a factor in the crash, authorities said.
Authorities believe the ski boat driver and the two men in the watercraft were friends and were vacationing together.
